How to Engage Your Community's Leaders

The program has encouraged and strengthened me as a pastoral leader and increased my confidence level in doing this important work. Within my congregation I feel that I now ask better questions, listen more deeply beneath the surface, encourage theological reflection more frequently, and engage community issues more creatively.
